Hon. Jimmy GriffinFormer Buffalo Mayor and long-time politician Jimmy Griffin passed away today. It’s a sad day in Buffalo.

Whether you liked him, or not you had to respect him and his honesty. You always knew where he stood, because he alway told it like it was.

Famous for his advice to citizens in the onset of the Blizzard of ’77 ’85 – to buy a six-pack and stay home – I think that would be a fitting way to remember him – buy a six-pack and hoist a few in his memory!
